Don't cross now - there's a nuclear train coming
Scottish CND today condemned the transport of highly radioactive nuclear waste through one of the most dangerous level crossings in Scotland. According to the ABC Railway Guide, the crossing at Stevenston in Ayrshire has a Collective Risk Rating of 3 (Very High).

Don't Bank on the Bomb is a campaign supported by a number of organisations within the Peace Movement. The campaign aims to highlight how some banks and financial institutions support companies involved in nuclear weapons production.
Don't Bank on the Bomb are keen to make the issue of support by banks and other financial institutions for nuclear weapons production a major issue in the forthcoming Scottish Parliament elections.
We are therefore suggesting that people raise the following questions at hustings meetings with candidates or directly in writing with candidates:
1. The Scottish National Party, the Labour Party, the Green Party are all against trident renewal, but the Scottish Parliamentary Pension Scheme according to reports have invested 587, 000 pounds in 2015 in 3 leading arms traders including rolls Royce which manufactures the propulsion systems( reactors ) for Trident submarines . Would you support divestment of the Scottish Parliament Pension Scheme in companies such as Rolls Royce that manufactures components of the Trident nuclear weapons system?
